I am looking for infomation on both the castle itself and the family associated with it.
My information is that it was built by Adolph and Adelheid Von der Burg sometime in the early 1100's.

There appears to be a site dedicated to this castle at http://www.wuppertal.de/region/schloss_burg/welcome.html . Unfortunately it is in German but it has some lovely pictures. If you don't read german you could try a translation program, I've seen some on the web.

Thought I'd quickly give it a try so the first paragraph of the above sight is translates by http://translator.go.com/ as

From their master seat, highly over the Wupper, they prevail almost 250 years over their Bergi country between Ruhr and victory. Before 1133 count Adolf I. established a smaller castle here on schroff the sloping mountain spur. After 1218, under the rule count Engelbert II. of mountain, at the same time powerful archbishop of Cologne, becomes the castle one of the largest attachment systems of West Germany. To 1380 it remains domicile of the counts and later dukes by mountain. Then the yard attitude is shifted after Duesseldorf. The changed weapon technique let become useless castles. From the weapon-rattling/clinking, never become a place of splendid hoefischer celebrations and hunting seat in the wild-rich forests of the Bergi country conquered castle. Lock castle is destroyed to a large extent toward end of the 30jaehrigen of war. In order 1700 partly again repaired, are to be stopped however the expiry any longer. Around 1850 the graefliche yard castle is only ruin. To the initiative " association of building of locks castle to the Wupper " it is to be thanked that lock castle can unfold its former splendour new. one begins 1887 based and predominantly supported by donations of bergischer manufacturers with the reconstruction. 1914 the military towers rise up again proudly out of the wooded hills. In the association of building of locks work today the three bergischen large cities rem-separate, Solingen and Wuppertal as shareholders for the preservation of this regional museum. They apply for it annually substantial totals.
It's bit pidgin but the sense is there. Hope this helps.
